The Family Advocate helps the parties to achieve an agreement on disputed issues, in particular, custody, access, and guardianship. If the parties are incapable to reach an agreement, the Family Advocate evaluates the parties’ situation in light of the best interests of the child and makes a recommendation to the Court with regard to custody, access or guardianship.
Upon request by the parties, the Family Advocate institutes an inquiry during which the Family Advocate, aided by a Family Counsellor, interviews the parties to ascertain their personal condition and the background details to their issue. The Family Advocate then interviews the children to permit them the chance to be heard. This prevents the child from having to present in Court.
